Section 32

October, 1830-Fayette, New York. Revelation received for Ezra Thayre and Northrop Sweet.

Laborers called to the vineyard for the last time-Gospel of the kingdom

D&C 32:1a Behold, I say unto you, my servants Ezra and Northrop,

D&C 32:1b Open ye your ears and hearken to the voice of the Lord, your God, whose word is quick and powerful, sharper than a two-edged sword, to the dividing asunder of the joints and marrow, soul and spirit, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

D&C 32:1c For verily, verily, I say unto you that ye are called to lift up your voices as with the sound of a trump, to declare my gospel unto a crooked and a perverse generation;

D&C 32:1d for behold, the field is white, already to harvest; and it is the eleventh hour, and for the last time that I shall call laborers into my vineyard.

D&C 32:1e And my vineyard has become corrupted, every whit; and there is none which doeth good save it be a few; and they err in many instances because of priestcrafts, all having corrupt minds.

D&C 32:2a And verily, verily, I say unto you that this church have I established and called forth out of the wilderness;

D&C 32:2b and even so will I gather mine elect from the four quarters of the earth, even as many as will believe in me and hearken unto my voice;

D&C 32:2c yea, verily, verily, I say unto you that the field is white, already to harvest; wherefore, thrust in your sickle, and reap with all your might, mind, and strength.

D&C 32:2d Open your mouths, and they shall be filled; and you shall become as Nephi of old, who journeyed from Jerusalem in the wilderness;

D&C 32:2e yea, open your mouths, and spare not; and you shall be laden with sheaves upon your backs, for lo, I am with you;

D&C 32:2f yea, open your mouths, and they shall be filled, saying, Repent, repent, and prepare ye the way of the Lord; and make his paths straight, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

D&C 32:2g Yea, repent and be baptized, every one of you, for the remission of your sins; yea, be baptized even by water, and then cometh the baptism of fire and the Holy Ghost.

D&C 32:3a Behold, verily, verily, I say unto you, This is my gospel, and remember that they shall have faith in me, or they can in nowise be saved; and upon this Rock I will build my church;

D&C 32:3b yea, upon this Rock ye are built; and if ye continue, the gates of hell shall not prevail against you; and ye shall remember the church articles and covenants, to keep them;

D&C 32:3c and whoso having faith, you shall confirm in my church by the laying on of the hands; and I will bestow the gift of the Holy Ghost upon them.

D&C 32:3d And the Book of Mormon and the Holy Scriptures are given of me for your instruction; and the power of my Spirit quickeneth all things;

D&C 32:3e wherefore, be faithful, praying always, having your lamps trimmed and burning, and oil with you, that you may be ready at the coming of the Bridegroom; for behold, verily, verily, I say unto you that I come quickly. Even so. Amen.
